I’m into bicycling. I’m also (kind of) into bicycle repair and maintenance.

But … since my shop is a bike shop, woodshop, and general __ shop … I need things to be rather portable and flexible.

My brother talked to me about a “spinner rack.” I understood what he meant. Figured it out, drew it up, and built the sucker. For ME, it works absolutely beautifully.

I built frames for the doors so that I could double-side the pegboard, allowing enough space in the void for the hooks to stick through. I installed LED ‘puck lights’ to light up each of the interior shelves. The platform is a Harbor Freight furniture dolly.

This was project #1 … AFTER the workbench (that I’ll post momentarily).

This is a great idea. Wish I had the floor space for it.

I really like the inside storage, nothing goes to waste. Good work, BTKS

I’ve got a bike I’ve been thinking of fixin’ for ‘bout 3 years.
If I had that cool, and efficient, tool tote I mighta done it already.

REALLY a nice job!

Thanks much for all the kind words.

I’ve been really happy with the way it turned out. It rolls easily, holds everything, and could probably be adapted for basic auto maintenance, or many other hobbies. The fact that the build is ‘symmetrical’ allows easy access to inside stuff without regard to which direction the rack is facing. I find that handy when going after the tap/die, the calipers, the micrometer, etc.

Sawdust2 (Lee): you had me LOL, there! A familiar problem: when I head to the basement, there’s a mountain bike to be fixed, and/but … there’s also a bin of scrap wood that … could really BE something!

Decisions, decisions….

Incidentally, if you’re not familiar with these two sites, there’s a WEALTH of diy bike repair info….

Heyyyyy!

Thanks, Dusty.

I use it all the time. Used to really appreciate it … until … I saw Jawhorse’s version :-)

It IS great when somebody resurrects a project that I missed, first time around….
